In news from the occupied West Bank, the general coordinator of the Palestinian BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) National Committee was detained Thursday after Israel forces raided his home in Ramallah at 3 a.m. Mahmoud Nawajaa was handcuffed and blindfolded in front of his wife and three young children. BDS movement co-founder Omar Barghouti said the arrest is part of an Israeli campaign to “terrorize Palestinian BDS activists and their families.”
